Perfect way to explore the culinary delights of the city
, Jun 2019
We enjoyed the food and wine walking tour in Funchal with Sofia. She knows a lot about the city, its history and ofcourse about the food and drinks that are typical of Madeira. She can tell about all these things in a very pleasant and enthusiastic manner. We were the only two people that participated in this group which made it possible to ask anything that occured to us directly. This was in our opinion a great advantage. The food that was served was really delicious, variously and sometimes really suprisingly. Also the drinks that we received were great and the places that we went were ranging from modern to authentic. Highly recommended if you like to explore the eating and drinking habits of a country/city that you are visiting!
Don't waste your time or money!

Save yourself the expensive of this tour and stroll towntown on your own to sample the food and drinks that Funchal has to offer. The portions were very small and not very good. Our guide couldn't leave fast enough at the last stop and we felt a little stranded after this. Thank goodness for maps of Funchal.
Loved Sofia and her exciting walking tour

Sofia is a doll, knowledgeable in Madeira history and a fabulous story teller. We enjoyed her tour very much. We brought home some cookies from a lovely bakery and we highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed. Sofia's tour is when my husband agreed to try red wine for the first time and is now hooked (and trying to find Madeira wine in the U.S.!)
A perfect way to discover Madeira

It was our first albeit short trip to the Island and the tour was a perfect intro into history, people and of course food and wine.Our tour guide was great and shared a lot of interesting detail so all in all something to remember and recommend.

Thank you Sophia for a delightful day filled with wonderful food, wine and stories. It was the perfect way to start our visit to Madeira. Felt like meeting an old friend that couldn't wait to tell us about her beautiful home. Highly recommend and please go hungry!
